So…I have a dirty little secret. **SIGH**
Well, that’s what it’s SUPPOSED to look like. But here lately, it’s been looking like this:
It’s where I keep my jewelry. And this may not look so bad, until you realize that I wear jewelry every single day. And this mess was really becoming a time consumption in the mornings while getting ready for work!
See what I mean?
I could easily spend upwards of 10 minutes trying to get that blue necklace untangled from all the other ones…and then I would have to stop and find the matching earrings!

Sooo…here are the “after” pics!
First of all, what do you think? And I’m well aware of the fact that I have too much jewelry – no need to tell me about that! (Can you believe that I had gotten rid of some of it?!) Now, this is just my costume jewelry. All my fine jewelry is stored safely away.
I was pretty happy with the results – I might need another one, ha!
